If you are a fan of reuben sandwiches, then you are going to adore this soup recipe. It's everything that you love about the sandwich, but it's in soup form!

Tangy sauerkraut is the base of this delicious soup recipe, and strips of corned beef make it rich enough for a perfect meal. The whole dish is topped with gooey Swiss cheese for that classic flavor combination.

We recommend serving this soup with a side of toasty rye bread. Dunk it into the soup for a comforting meal that is perfect for any day of the week.

This soup sounds so weird to me but I do love a good Reuben sandwich and haven't had one in a while. I wonder if there is such a thing as rye crackers for the soup...hmmmm, I think it's worth some researching to find out. Perhaps maybe even a hard Rye roll or crostini would compliment this soup as well.

Honestly I chuckled when I read the name of this Slow Cooker Reuben Soup recipe. Then I read the soup?? I was so intrigued that I had to make it...well..who's laughing now? The soups was great, and tasted just like a Reuben with all the comfort of soup. I made rye bread bruschetta on the side to complete the picture.
